2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I had seen this on the shelves for a long time before drinking it. Never noticed the ’black and tan’ part, I had always assumed it was a thick stout so the pour was surprisingly light. Bitter, not very strong. They must have hopped the lager to hell compared with the stout to make it taste like this.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Caramel colour, dissipating white head. Aroma of green tomato, vegetables, malts and caramel. Sweet flavour, caramel and nuts. Sweet finish, caramel. Bit disappointing, was expecting more.
(from 900mL bottle @ ZZT 8b, Oirschot 2013. Thanks for sharing DutchDrebus)

Zzt’13, ten eerste een leuke fles, bruine heldere kleur. Ruikt vooral naar mout en een beetje kruidig. Smaakt zoet, mout, drop, droog, waterig.

Thanks to drebus. Pours a dark orange slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells like a pilsner. No porter found. Tastes light coffee, bit creamy and malts. Average carbo, thin body and a sticky texture.

Good black and tan. Easy on the wallet and worthy of taking your time to drink. The size is a bonus as well.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Shared a bottle from Maruhn (Darmstadt). Pours a clear brown colour with almost no head. Aroma is caramel, toffee and malt. Medium to low carbonation and light body. Flavour goes from light bitter to light sweet with a dry end. Overall a beer with no much of a character but drinkable.

Poured from glass jug. Good times with good friends. For a catchy name, tame results. Mediocre head, transparent light brown color. Some maltiness

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from a jug. Pours a darker amber color with a beige head of foam. Aroma is lighter caramels and graham cracker. Taste is oddly sweet and malty. Lighter in body. Really not very good, but isn’t repulsive.
